Should Women Shave Their Legs?
*sigh* I really can’t believe I’m writing this post. The above pic is of Monique, the comedian, from this past weekend when she attended the BET Hip Hop Awards in Atlanta. Now those are some hairy legs. In the past, I’ve just kept it moving when people complained about her legs. But it’s really beginning to irk me. Ladies, there is no excuse for you to get out of the house looking like godzilla is your grandfather.
Yes, I respect Monique’s right to let her legs look whichever way she fancies, but this right here is so not the business. These legs have even been the topic of conversation in her interview with the view a few years back. The topic had arisen because of the below flick taken at the Golden Globe Awards:
Back then, she told us that it was a “black woman” thing. That’s a damn lie. There is nothing black about the jungle that is her legs. And during her post Oscar interview with Barbara Walters, She insisted that her hubby loves the hair on her legs. As far as I know, there is no man who is turned on by a hairy woman. I’m actually blessed (or cursed depending on how you look at it) with a man who will notice if my armpit hair is looking slightly wild. With all the products on the market, she has no excuse to keep on with this travesty.
Personally, I don’t have a problem with hair on my legs, but if I did, I would laser or wax the hell out of those hairs. I imagine it’s sort of how we shave armpits. I usually feel so much more confident and free with smooth, hair-free underarms. A woman who doesn’t shave is like a man who only showers once a month. But that’s just me I guess… Ladies, what do you think? And fellas, what do you prefer?
